. ♪ and harness our technology for new energy solutions. [ female announcer ] around the globe, the people of boeing are working together, to build a better tomorrow. that's why we're here. ♪ >>> on tuesday, the day a new pope was installed in rome, president obama makes a sensitive trip to the holy land for his first presidential trip to israel. the trip isn't ambitious. mostly the president seems to be responding to critics who question why he's not been to israel as president. truth is reagan never wept, and president george w. bush only visited during his final months in office. the president, however, is dogged by the perception that he's pulled toward the government of america's strongest ally in the middle east and by the criticism that his outreach to improve relations with the muslim world has been at israel's expense. during an interview on friday with me for "press pass," israel's ambassador to the u.s. sought to downplay any rift. >> there is a u.s./israel relationship which is deep, which is unbreakable, and that's a message of assurance to the people of israel at a very tur
. >> the issue of energy is one that looks to be something that the president and perhaps can get some bipartisan agreement. that xl pipeline coming down from canada, the state department, congressman, has cleared the way for the president to say, yes, let's open it up. wy whooi shouldn't he? >> i'm in the process of looking at the state department's analysis. they did a very complicated analysis. we have resolved that you can actually build the pipeline safely in terms of the committees it goes through but a they rerouted the pipeline, because the president and others raised concerns. now the question is whether or not the overall climate effects, the overall energy impacts are something for us. i'm in the process of looking at the state department's report right now. >> that's the easiest thing to do. you could create 20,000 new jobs. it's been out there for three years. this is the challenge. energy is even in our budget. the budget that balances, it puts a new energy perspective in there that has energy independence. how many jobs would that create? why do we have to wait? this is common sens
the importance of growth. i just came from a hearing in the energy subcommittee of energy and commerce. we were fortunate enough to hear from the -- one of the members of the railroad commission in texas. the railroad commission doesn't have anything to do with trains any more, it has to do with energy. the commissioner from texas was at the committee hearing and i asked him a question, i said in the ryan budget that we will hear about tomorrow, there is an estimate of $11 billion over the next 10 years that will be paid to the federal government because of development of oil and natural gas on federal land. i said i'm from texas. that number seems a little bit light to me. i would expect the amount of revenue produced on federal lands from oil and gas production, assuming we don't legislate it out of existence through the environmental protection agency, he said in texas the two-year budget figure for oil and goes coverage taxes is $7 billion. well, that would be a significantly greater amount than the $11 billion estimated in the ryan budget. i asked mr. ryan about this last night at the rule
the debates. it was one of the things that i think rick perry didn't forget. get rid of the energy department, the department of education. now here is the thing -- the point i'm trying to make is that an education base you can legislate class size, how many books are available, food they get to eat, but you can't force par rental connection to the child. >> but would you agree we have a parental absence crisis? >> hal: no, i don't. i think there are critical groups, and usually they are either super rich or upper rich people who ignore their children and you get these kind of columbine type of ignored kids who are acting out and have all of these resources to act out, adam lambert -- >> lanza. >> hal: thank you. they were very well to do -- >> yes and i think the divorce of the parents there was a lock of oversight. it sounded like the mother had control over his day-to-day. >> hal: but there are lots of situations like that and those kids don't go shoot someplace up. it's really about what experience they have day-to-day. the newtown shooter, you have thi
between having a good education and getting a job. secondly, we need a national energy policy to ensure that we have clean and inexpensive energy across the long-term. if you look at the history of successful economies, the two most important numbers are the cost of money and the cost of energy. third, we have to reform our immigration system and, fourth, we have to invest in our infrastructure. to do these things requires investments. and we will fundamentally not be able to make these investments unless we, as i said, reform our entitlement programs and raise revenues. we're confronted with two choices in our budgets. and these are insufficient choices. the american people deserve better. on one hand we have a choice where we don't recognize the reality of where the entitlement programs are going. and then the other choice is we slash and cut the critical investments we need to make to have a future. we can do better. each party likes to take the high ground on a balanced approach. but what does that really mean? to me a balanced approach means several things. first, we need additiona
raising taxes. when we adopt a strategy of caring about people, then we will legalize american energy production. then we will get gas $2 a gallon. then we will make sure that your sister has her second amendment rights to keep herself safe from an assailant. and we will make sure that we are innovating and growing our way into the new cures, because we have uniquely american lifeblood as her signature. and what that is, is doing right by the next generation. we all benefited by these medical and innovative technology breakthroughs. they were gifts to us to our generation. and i say to you now that it's our duty to pay it forward for the next generation. it's our duty to grow the scientific progress and innovation that we desperately need. it's our gift and our legacy to the next generation. we do it because we love. we do it because we care. this is who we are. this is our movement. the movement of love. the movement of care. we do this because we love each other. and because we love our nation. die bless you, and god bless the united states of america -- god bless you and god bless
-established departments, defense, nasa, department of energy, all their acquisition management. they are still on the high-risk list, so that's a tough issue to resolve. and it's all about implementation and having the property discipline in place. >> and just to provide some context. gao has issued over 13 of products looking at every aspect of the justice programs and operations and made over 1800 recommendations. a key looking across all those protestant impact of the departments efforts, trace back to the management of the department. is to put this in context. we have identified this as a crosscutting issue and all the management areas are important, i agree that acquisitions along with i.t. are the two areas that have the most direct effect under the departments ability to secure the border, secure air travel. i.t. is very, very similar to acquisition. dhs is focus, the report on the initiatives that they are pursuing, and sure they're following their existing policy, not just in acquisition and i.t. but across all the management functions. dhs has good policy in place. the key is really execution,
%, why not pay for solar energy and alternative energy development? why not pay -- if obama gets started on this -- >> joe and i have agreed that we're going to compensate -- what do you want to see, 20%? >> we'll start at 20. we'll start at 20. >> as we spend it all, we're going to need more. we're going to need the preschool, we're going to need solar energy. >> i thought i was completely wrong this what it was. >> it's an island, isn't it? >> it's an island. >> but it shows you how interconnected it is. >> i know. and fait accompli, he said i got there and is they were doing it. >> what if you found out that your bank got taken over by the fdic and the insurance that you thought protected your money was not there, that it was wrong? that's the problem. >> and by the way, 10% of your money is gone, too. >> explain to the eurozone just waking up exactly what -- >> carolin is going to do that supposedly when we throw to her. >> they have to do something. >> they follow twitter. >> did you wear your jacket last week? >> no. >> will you write down all of the key deferences for obama care f
-- >> look. i was talking to my friend dan dicker. he does energy stuff. we were saying the find of natural gas, the buys and finds, the largest in the world -- noble, nbl, and cyprus, they own it. this is perhaps the way europe can end the chokehold of a russian natural gas pipes that can be shut down. is this europe? say, i'm going to give you a little geopolitical thing here. >> i love it when you wax geopolitical. >> you like that? this is central europe saying, you know what, russia? we're done with you. we'll take the natural gas and shut you down and the russians i think want this natural gas. i think at the end if it goes to the russians, then that's what this was really about, russia versus the west. is like nato! what are you like nodding. are you like faber? whatever i say, faber's like -- >> whoever sits in that chair just looks as you with a smirk on that face physically. >> i will say it could be gaza g gazaga, duke, louisville -- he'll be -- >> possibly. possibly. >> famous faberism. >> you look askance, you put your arms -- >> channel my inner faber. >> he makes calls! >> wh
voting for the keystone pipeline. american-made energy means more jobs and lowering energy prices for the marn people. supporting patient-centered reforms means more jobs and lower health care costs for the american people. and protecting and strengthening medicare meeds a secure retirement for older americans. cutting waste means more airness and accountability for hardworking taxpayers. doing this means preserving the american dream, which is what we were sent here to do. we've balanced the budget before. 1997, republican congress working with a democrat president, bill clinton, came together to put the plan that would in fact balance the budget and we did. for four years ran a budget surplus. the president has an opportunity during this critical debate to come forward and to help make this part of his legacy like it has become part of the clinton legacy. working together on behalf of the american people to solve what we know is a crisis in our country. we can't continue to spend money that we don't have. it's as simple as that. when you spent more money than you brought in for
walked into the building a few days ago, people came up to me to say, "and thanks for giving us energy an inspiration." what are you talking about? i get that from you. there are those that are undermining american exceptionalism. but i had some thoughts that i wanted to start out with, and it was about three weeks ago. i am with a group that negotiates. i was sitting in a conference, and they had an expert on the middle east there, and he began to talk to us about how the muslim brotherhood and the arabs bring that has taken place, and summer and fall and maybe another spring, that is according to him a hollow ideology, and they are willing to die for what they believe in, and i listened to that, and i thought, i have gone to church here in western europe, and there are museums, if americans do not go over there, there are museums every day but sunday, and where is the hollow ideology? i listened to one of those representatives say to us that he had inadvertently -- as a christian, everyone suspected his agenda was rooted in his christian beliefs and that he in any waye seen other tha
be in to maintaining structures. he's got to unleash the energy that was given us by jesus and the holy spirit and i wonder if he's given us a new interpretive key in his homily. he spoke, i don't know if you had the advantage of hearing, of the translation, he spoke of tender love, tender love. now women are pros when it comes to tender love, and he spoke for st. joseph loving jesus and mary, but then he said this tender love has to go to creation, to god's creatures and especially to those who are most fragile, especially to those who are poor and struggling and feel alienated. women are pros when it comes to tender love. will they have a more accented role in his papacy? i wouldn't doubt it. >> he talked about mercy over these last several days. >> yes. >> he talked about forgiveness and says "we, too i think are these people who on the one hand want to listen to jesus but other times we like to beat up on others." it's your job to take this message back home and preach this to the people of the archdiocese of new york. how will you convey that message? >> he's used these days since his election
about...by the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >>brian: remember when tebowing was the big craze? >>steve: sure. >>brian: that's long good. forget about eastwooding and talking to an empty chair. the latest craze, the tale of liberty pose, this is a photo over the weekend. you can see it looks strikingly similar to lady liberty. >>steve: except the big gulp isn't welcoming immigrants into new york harbor. >>brian: the palin pose trending on-line and leading to a late-night craze for groups looking to strike that pose. we'll see where that goes. that's allowed. bloomberg would okay that. >>ainsley: good morning to you. if you're just waking up, 6:32 on the east coast. a few headlines. a pennsylvania community is mourning the loss of a beloved coach and her unborn child killed in a bus crash.

in the energy sector, that is, counties and metro areas that have a strong energy sector, north dakota in a secular -- particular. host: what affects publishing growth? -- population growth? guest: employment. federal grants are driven by a formula that excludes population estimates. if you are and orange counties are losing -- population, that might be problematic because grants are tied to your population estimates. not that they don't trust the census, but their numbers are closely tied to funding. you talked about publishing growth and concentration. why is that significant? it is a two-part thing. the country overall is growing slower than it was 10 years ago. the growth is more concentrated than it was. you have counties that are gaining and even fewer that are gaining a lot of people. half of the country's population last year to be accounted for the 46th largest gaining counties. populationcentrated growth, even more so than 10 years ago. it took about 63 counties to get to that 50% mark. host: beecher in greenville, kentucky. urban caller. good morning. theer: my question is f
energy cost grants programs that go to subsidize electricity bills in two states -- alaska and hawaii. alaska and hawaii. $5 million -- $5.9 million for the usda's economic impact initiative grants. now, the economic impact initiative grants have become slush funds for local governments to do such things as rehab an exercise room, renovate a museum on the pacific island of palau, and buy kitchen equipment for city government offices. now i'd like to talk a bit about defense spending. and this is probably the most painful part of my comments. and i will explain why later on. defense spending includes over $6 billion, $6 billion in unrequested or unauthorized funding for programs for the department of defense. at a time when the department of defense is facing the impact of sequestration on top of the $487 billion in cuts directed by the president, we can't afford to spend a single taxpayer dollar on programs that are not a priority for the defense department and our national security. the following things are beginning to happen now that the department of defense is under sequestration
a failing bankrupt solar energy company. and so for the rest of them, these hardworking americans, they want an opportunity and they want a main street economy that if they work hard and they play by the rules, every american can succeed. finally, the people i represent , they believe it's just immoral, immoral to saddle our children with these trillions of dollars of debt. that's why i'm proud to support both the republican study committee budget and the republican budget. they'll bring us a vibrant economy with a whole new tax code which is fairer, flatter, simpler and more competitive, a budget that is guaranteed to grow jobs and paychecks. contrary to the democrat budget, no tax increases on nobody. we quit spending money we don't have, and i know my democratic colleague is very sensitive about the balance issue, because they have a budget which never balances. the american people demand one. the republican study committee and the house republican budget deliver it for a fairer economy, for a balanced budget, for a greater future for our children. we need to support these republican budg
to keep it giving oxygen, you want to keep it warm. >> today, the grandfather of ten has a renewed energy that keeps him motivated. >> i feel good, you know. i used to walk around this block right here, used to take me about 40, 50 minutes to walk it. now i can walk that block in probably 15 minutes. >> perhaps mr. padilla said it best, why put an organ on ice and then wake it up when you can just keep it warm and pumping and normal and then just put it in a new body? i think he probably said it better than anyone. this is a worldwide trial and i think it's going to change transplant medicine. >> it is a sight to behold. >> i was nervous about it. i was reading the sdricript and said, i wonder if these images are going to gross people out, but it's amazing. >> and that's beautiful. what a lucky man. >> we want to go back to the president's trip to the middle east for a moment. the president and benjamin netanyahu, as we know, don't always agree. >> but during their news conference on wednesday, both men felt that one persistent reporter happens to be our own chuck todd, pushing his luck a
renewable energy. all right. no one be nervous when the lights go out for an hour this evening. weather-wise what can we expect today? >> nice and clear out there. the northerly winds pushing the fog away. we are looking for another mild to warm afternoon. as we head out to first weekend of spring, shaping up to the very seasonal. in fact, this morning with the sun coming up 7:08, we will see plenty of that. 7:25 it sets. 12 hours and 60 minutes of day light. this is the way it will stay for the next couple days but things could be changing. here's a look from the emeryville camera. you will notice it is pretty clear out there but the camera shaking in some spots. napa 48. numbers really beginning to drop with the lower due points and the clear sky. 51 out toward fairfield with 42 livermore, 43 hayward ask los gatos. and from the sutro camera, nice vantage point with the clear conditions, 49 this the city and 46 san carlos, 44 san jose and low 40s in santa cruz. so our forecast then our high lights, clear and cool this morning with a sunny and mild conditions throughout today and tomorr
. the city was awarded a $30,000 grant to promote renewable energy. of course, today we can count on solar power. the sun is going to be out? >> yes. the sun sets at 7:25. it should be another beautiful afternoon. very little in the way of cloud cover this morning but as we start you out with live doppler 7hd, free of precipitation. we will be looking at the sun coming up in less than andrew murray. 7:08 with 12 hours, 16 minutes of day light. live doppler 7hd quiet and we will see just a few high clouds in the forecast throughout the day today and the rest of your weekend. but as we go into the upcoming work week, we will see extra cloud cover. as we bow into the middle of the week, the possibility of rain comes back our way slightly. 37 in santa rosa right now. the numbers continue to drop to the north with the clear skies, the lower dewpoints. 35 degrees in napa. holding on to some of the warmth over by the delta with a bit of a breeze. low 40s from livermore, hayward and las got toes. with the sutro camera with the sky. mid-40s san carlos and 44 oakland with 49 in san francisco. so fea
? >> yeah. >> there's so much negative energy for opponents of the aca. one of the things we needed was talk up the benefits because not everybody knows it's a good thing. some people might think they should wait. we want people to sign up right away. and talking to community-based organizations, there are a lot of federal resources, but there will not be a perfect plan handed to you on a silver platter. don't wait. this is an opportunity for our community. you need to do what you can in your own community, seek out these resources, but don't wait until it comes to you. you need to go to it. >> and definitely from the perspective of the national minority -- [inaudible] we represent over 3,000 community-based organizations throughout the country, and one of the things that we're trying to do is pass along a lot of the information that's being put out by hhs because it's already been well articulated that the cbos have a traditional role in helping the people that they serve get access to these expanded programs, and we need to put the tools at their fingertips. so the council really sees itse
energy stores that we have here so we can be energy independent. we have vast amounts of energy reserves we need to tap so we can put people to work, bring down gas prices, stretch paychecks further. we've got to control our spending appetite. we've got to reform programs like medicare so they're solvent. we've got to reform our safety net so it works to get people on their feet. that's what this budget does. in a nutshell, instead of spending $46 trillion over the next 10 years, as we're currently poised to spend, we spend $41 trillion. instead of growing spending 5% a year we grow at 3.4% a year. with all the predictions of doom and gloom and how evil and terrible and horrible or budget is, it increases spending every year by 3.4% a year instead of 5% a year. the difference is we balance the budget. the difference is we let families keep more of their own take-home pay. the difference is we make sure our kids inherit a debt-free future. the difference is we do what's necessary to create a healthy economy, more take-home pay, faster economic growth and better jobs. that's why we're here
had spent a lot of time and a lot of energy and everett making sure -- effort making sure that scott walker and ron johnson won that primary. but that was our decision. and i wouldn't have appreciated the national party coming in and telling the state of wisconsin, now, wait a minute, i don't know about scott walker, i think we're going to go with mark newman. well, that's ridiculous. and that's the point. it's not that we want to handcuff ourselves, it just isn't practical, and i don't think it's right. >> governors have gone on to become some of the most significant republican presidents in the last century, nixon, reagan, bush. is the party doing enough to support the rising star governors once they get past that state endorsement process? >> well, i mean, that's the plan for 2013 and 2014. um, i know that state parties sure do a lot of work and, obviously, the rga does. you know, we have a different party too. i mean, you know, i don't know, 15, 20 years ago maybe more there budget an nrcc, there wasn't 10, 20 different super pacs and 527s. we have a big group of organizations th
and research, clean energy and housing. budgets should be designed to grow our economy and get people back to work. this republican budget does not reflect the values of our great nation. it will hurt our economy and it will hurt the american people. it says as yogi beara said, deja vu all over again. more tax breaks for the richest americans, big subsidies for big oil, tax subsidies to companies that ship jobs overseas at the expense of the middle class and working poor. our federal budget should honor the commitments we have made to our seniors, but this republican proposal would end the medicare guarantee as we know it, shifting rising health care costs to seniors. we should be educating our next leaders to enter the workplace successfully and making meaningful investments in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, bridges, rods and schools and put people back to work in jobs that help support families. but this budget makes deep cuts in rebuilding america and in education. according to the center for american progress, the republican budget proposal on the floor today would cut $1.2 t
of time and a lot of energy and effort making sure that scott walker and ron johnson won that primary. that was our decision. i would not have appreciated the national party coming in and telling the state of wisconsin i do not know about scott walker i think we will go with mark neumann. that is ridiculous. and that is the point. it is not that we want to handcuff ourself it is just not practical. it is not right. >> governors have gone on to be some of the most significant republican presidents in the last century -- nixon, reagan, bush. is the party doing enough to support the rising star governors once they get past the endorsement process? >> that is the plan for 2013 and 2014. i know our state parties do a lot of work. the rga does. we have a different party, too. 15 or 20 years ago or maybe more there wasn't an nrcc. there wasn't 10, 20 different 527's.r pacs and we have a big group of organizations involved in anding republicans conservatives elected. my job is to put together not only the best infrastructure and data and mechanics but we have our primary system that needs to

. we would be wise to invest in more resilient infrastructure, n sustainible nonfossil energy sources. we as a country should rise to the challenge. the united states is not a poor impoverished nation, we are just acting like one. we should be investing as if we believe there is a future for us. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from texas rise? mr. olson: mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. speaker, i rise today in strong support of the house republican budget. when a family racks up debt, it can take decades to pay off. the interest alone can add up to thousands of dollars. that's money that could be spent on braces, college tuition or bigger home. the same is true for government. ignoring our debt will force us to break promises we made to seniors and the poor. we won't be able to protect medicare, medicaid and social security for those who need it. the house
applaud her foresight for including investments in early childhood education, clean energy, national security, our veterans, and our seniors. and it preserves access to health care, opportunities for higher education and programs like snap and w.i.c. these supports are vital to keeping our economy moving in the right direction. her plan will help improve american competitiveness, foster innovation and open up more opportunities for small businesses to succeed. it lays out a blueprint for responsibly paying for these investments and reducing our deficit in a balanced way. each and every one of these priorities helps to improve the economic security of men, women and children, our families and our country. so i hope my colleagues will join me in supporting a plan, the murray plan that provides the foundation for growth instead of a plan that takes a meat ax approach to economic security of millions of families in our country. i yield the floor. mrs. murray: i want to thank the senator from hawaii for joining a number of very strong democratic women to talk about the importance of our b
